One of the most frequent questions novice pilots ask about any flight sim, but more so to FlightGear, is " why is my aircraft turning left all the time?" Although it could be due to wind gusts crossing the runway, it is more likely due to the increased realism FlightGear provides. In a certain other flight simulator, some settings are turned down to make the aircraft easier to fly. This reduces effects such as propeller torque and p -factor, which may be the cause of the tendency to turn to the left ( to figure out which effect, you may read more in [[Understanding Propeller Torque and P-Factor ]]).
Despite marketing slogans to the contrary, some flight simulators are aimed at a casual game player market, and ship with their " realism" turned down. The realism is always turned up in FlightGear.
FlightGear offers a great deal of realism, which may be confusing to first time pilots.
=== Navigation et aéroports ===
When you first start FlightGear, whether from the command line or the graphical interface, you may wonder how to determine what airports are available. Fgrun displays a list of airports, but you will not see details such as Tower or ILS frequencies. You will not find a map showing VORs and their frequencies. Short of finding an actual sectional map for the area you wish to fly, what can you do?

and the [[MPMap|FlightGear Online Map for multiplayers]] are both good resources as well as the FlightGear [http://fgfs.i-net.hu/modules/fgplanner/ Community Flight Planner].
